Local woman opens toy drive to help children affected by Hurricane Sandy | Community Spirit
MINT HILL, NC - A local woman is sending toys to children in New Jersey that were affected by Hurricane Sandy, and you can help.
Renee Ribera moved to the Mint Hill area from N.J. 20 years ago, and now wants to help her hometown that was hit by the hurricane.
She has set up a drive-through style donation drop-off location where people can drop off new, unwrapped toys for kids ages one to 12 on two upcoming days.
The toys will then be shipped to Saint Rose Catholic Church in Belmar, N.J. where they will be distributed.
Donations will be accepted at the Olde Sycamore tennis and pool clubhouse, located at the corner of Olde Sycamore Drive and Fairvew Road, on Sunday, November 25, and Sunday December 2, from 3 to 5 p.m.
